The links of the week

A few articles which I have recently read:

  • The worst academic job . An article summarizing what’s wrong with academic career paths today in the US and in Europe.
  • Is Google making us stupid ?: . A bit late, but it is an interesting article on how Google, and more generally easy access to a vast knowledge base may influence how we think. I can’t help linking this to a recent work from James Evans on the effects of open access to science (discussed in The Economist here).
